Bedford at the British, Tuesday

Posting this halfway through Wednesday so we now know that Toby has 2.5/4, Lucian has 2/4 and David is struggling a bit.

As for Paul, I’ll let him modestly explain how he’s in the lead after round 2 …

“This was just one of those days when the game went my way against a higher-rated opponent (2177 v my 2017). I know no theory in this sort of opening but a kind of King’s Indian set-up developed and I just hoped for a playable middle game. Just three of us on 2/2 and I have White v Ken Norman in Round 3.”
